SE23NE WEETWOOD LANE, Weetwood 714-1/6/1225 (West side (off)) Bardon Grange

GV II

Large house, now university hall of residence. 1860/61. Attributed to Cuthbert Brodrick. For William Brown. Ashlar, grey slate hipped roof. 2 storeys, 5 bays, left bay set back. Moulded plinth. Bays 4 and 5 break forward slightly and have a shallow hipped roof; the round-arched entrance, left, has carved stone bosses between roll-mouldings and top-glazed panelled door. Full-height 3-light canted bay window to right; segmental-arched plate-glass sashes in roll-moulded architraves throughout, moulded 1st-floor string and sill band with carved flower motif, deep bracketed eaves, tall modillion-corniced end stacks. Added dormer. The fine detailing, entrance and deep eaves are characteristic of Brodrick's work seen at No.9, Alma Road (qv). INTERIOR: not inspected. HISTORICAL NOTE: William Brown bought 93 acres of the Englefield Estate in 1858. He was a stuff merchant with premises in Bradford and linked with the business of Thomas Wolrych Stansfield of Weetwood Grove (qv). The banking firm of William Brown and Co had premises in Commercial Street and later Park Row in Leeds; the Oxley family of Spenfield (qv) and The Elms were close neighbours of the builder of Bardon Grange and were partners in the banking firm, presumably the same William Brown. The house remained in the Brown family until at least 1920 (Miss Jane Elizabeth, Kelly's Directory). (Powell K & Douglas J, Victorian Society (pers.comm.): 1992-; Kelly et al., Leeds Directories: 1864-1920).
